Super Troopers picture

Other mistake: In the shot where Ramathorne is at the gun range, about to shoot Mac in the bullet proof cup, he is talking to Foster and Rabbit about how they are going to get in to the Spurbury Police Lockup. If you watch him draw his gun, he moves his other hand down to chamber a bullet, the sound effect is heard, but he never actually pulls the action back on the gun.

Other mistake: After all the plants have stopped being pollenated when the pollen jocks are getting ready for liftoff you see the branches outside the window have green leaves.

Caddyshack picture

Other mistake: During the dinner party scene, Carl is going gopher hunting. The shot of him approaching the tree shows it's daylight in the background, when the previous shot showed it very very dark out.

Mr. Deeds picture

Other mistake: Near the end of the movie, directly after Deeds pulls Babe out of the ice cold water, is it just me or is her Old-Navy-type jacket still dry? (It still looks light colored and fuzzy) Should it not be wet considering her whole body was just in water? (01:14:25)

The Return of the Living Dead picture

Other mistake: When Trash first comes back to life as a zombie there is a shot of rain falling and smoke swirling. The shot plays forward, then reverses for a second or two before playing forward again. The rain falls up and the smoke reverses direction.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off picture

Other mistake: In the scene where Cameron is sinking in the pool you can clearly see some kind of weight belt or something around his waist, which isn't there when he is out of the pool.

Ghost Town picture

Other mistake: When Dr. Pincus looks at the three laxative bottles, there's a close-up of one of the bottles. The label on the bottle reads "Take 1 tablet daily with a glass of water" and "Qty: 50". Doesn't sound like a label for a liquid solution. (I noticed this in normal playback then paused to confirm it.) (00:09:10)

Other mistake: Jack's parents were at a Halloween party when his mother went into labor. Later in the movie when he's asked by his teacher he says his birthday is September 12th.

Grease 2 picture

Other mistake: The movie starts in September 1961 and we are told that the talent show is in June. During the talent show there's a big banner saying 1961 when it should read 1962.

The Stuff picture

Other mistake: When the fake TV ads for the Stuff are shown, the container states "1 Pint (.474ml)". 0.474ml is about an eyedropper drip of liquid. The decimal point shouldn't have been there.

St. Trinian's picture

Other mistake: After Kelly and the twins climb out of the sewer tunnel and hear footsteps, the twins sit atop the steel grating pretending to cry while the rest hide below. All the walls and paintings behind the twins are the very same ones behind Kelly, Taylor and Andrea later, when they've finally reached their target painting, in a different area of the gallery. We can even see the square of wood planks covering the area of the steel grating seen earlier. (01:13:35 - 01:24:00)

License to Drive picture

Other mistake: When Dean compliments Les on the great driving making up for a year of boredom, Les looks around up in the air in a direction away from the car, then suddenly says "there's a scratch on my car." He then looks down on the car at the scratch and shows Dean. He said the "scratch" line before actually seeing it.

Kindergarten Cop picture

Other mistake: The toy store manager has his assistant gift wrap an empty box. The race car set is still on the table fully assembled.

Suggested correction: The manager brings the box to the counter and tells the assistant to gift wrap the box, but we don't actually see what happens in the store after Crisp leaves. There is no indication how much time has passed. It is plausible that the manager brought the box to the assistant and told them to gift wrap it, but that the assistant knows they will also have to disassemble the toy and put it in the box first. We don't ever see the car set still in the window after the customer leaves so we can't assume the assistant wrapped an empty box.

Absolutely Anything picture

Other mistake: Catherine lives in apartment 1 on the first floor, but she goes in to apartment 4 on the second floor and right in front of Neil's apartment. (00:06:26 - 01:10:28)

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: There is no mistake. In the scene quoted Catherine says "Have I always lived across from you or have you magically rearranged things?" Of course, this is what Neil has done, and there is therefore no error.

Tin Cup picture

Other mistake: When Roy is about to hit the ball off the porta-potty, the TV commentator bets Romeo that he won't hit the shot onto the green. Roy's shot ends up on the fringe of the green, not on the putting surface itself (an important difference), but Dewey collects the bet.

Arachnophobia picture

Other mistake: Irv and Blaire's death scene doesn't make sense. When Irv poured butter on the popcorn, he should've noticed the spider in the bowl. Also, when Blaire picked the spider up, she should've felt it. Both of them still appeared to be watching the TV after being bitten, which also didn't make sense. Why didn't they have seizures like the other victims?

Gone in 60 Seconds picture

Other mistake: When Memphis and Kip are hiding from Johnny B and his crew in the cafe following the ambush, Memphis devises a plan to make good an escape. He sends Kip out to use the tow cable on the heavy tow rig to destroy Johnny B's Mercedes. First angle shows a cable wrapped around a rear A-arm of the vehicle and the hook connected to the cable, the next shows a hook directly attached to the front axle, which is the one that gets torn from the Mercedes when the tow rig pulls away. Additionally, a different cabling rig and loose cabling used in the stunt are strewn behind the car. So even if Kip somehow made 2 connections without being seen or heard, the rear rig is different than the one shown in the first shot. (00:51:00 - 00:53:00)
